    What date will Disney begin allowing 2018 Candlelight Processional dining reservations to be made? If that hasn't been announced can you state when last year's opened up so I know when to begin watching for it?

    Hi Valerie!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    My family truly enjoys getting into the Christmas spirit by attending the Candlelight Processional during Epcot's Holidays Around the World. With celebrity narrators, a mass choir, and a 50-piece orchestra, the Biblical Christmas story is told through word and song - it's simply beautiful. Our favorite way to experience this event is by booking a Candlelight Dining Package - a delicious meal, followed by reserved seating at the show.

    I, like you, am eagerly awaiting the announcement of dates, celebrity narrators, and dining package information for this year's event. Last year, I believe Candlelight Dining Packages opened in late June, and if I remember correctly, it was June 30th. I was so excited to see Neil Patrick Harris listed for our dates last year - that was on my bucket list! I can't wait to see which celebrity narrator will be there for our vacation dates this year.

    I encourage you to keep an eye on the Candlelight Processional page on the Walt Disney World Resort website, as well as the Walt Disney World page on the Disney Parks Blog for any announcements regarding the 2018 event.

    I hope this helps with your planning. Have a magical day ! - Diane W.
